The much-awaited Tamil action entertainer Jailer, starring Rajinikanth and directed by Nelson, has the relishing update for the fans as they completed its shooting and is gearing up for a grand release on August 10. The film’s production house Sun Pictures took to Twitter and shared the series of pictures from the wrap-up party.
Jailer marks the first collaboration between Rajinikanth and Nelson, who is known for his quirky and humorous films like Kolamavu Kokila and Doctor. The shared post read, “It’s a wrap for #Jailer! Theatre la sandhippom #JailerFromAug10”. The film also features Shiva Rajkumar, Tamannaah, Ramya Krishnan, Jackie Shroff, Yogi Babu and Mohanlal in a cameo role.
The music is composed by Anirudh Ravichander, who has previously worked with Rajinikanth in Petta and Darbar. The film’s plot revolves around a gang of criminals who try to rescue their leader from prison, but face a tough challenge from the strict and smart jailer played by Rajinikanth.
The film promises to be a fun-filled entertainer with action, comedy and drama. The film’s first look poster, which was released in June last year, showed Rajinikanth in a stylish avatar with a salt-and-pepper beard and sunglasses. The film was shot in various locations like Chennai, Cuddalore and Jaisalmer amid the pandemic. The film’s post-production work is currently underway and the makers are planning to release the film’s teaser and trailer soon.
Jailer is one of the most anticipated films of 2023 as it is Rajinikanth’s 169th film in his illustrious career. The film will also mark Shiva Rajkumar and Tamannah’s debut in Tamil cinema. Jailer is produced by Kalanithi Maran under his banner Sun Pictures, which has previously bankrolled Rajinikanth’s blockbuster films like Enthiran, Petta and Annaatthe. The film will be released in Tamil and dubbed versions in other languages.
